Yes, I also got the gcc update after the kernel update. With the new gcc, I could fix the Nvidia kernel module.
Here's how: # Show the current vermagic string of the kernel module modinfo nvidia-384 -k 4.4.0-116-generic # It will probably say: # vermagic: 4.4.0-116-generic SMP mod_unload modversions # Here the retpoline string is missing. # You can fix this by removing and re-building the module with DKMS sudo dkms remove nvidia-384/384.111 -k 4.4.0-116-generic sudo dkms install nvidia-384/384.111 -k 4.4.0-116-generic # After that the modinfo command will show # vermagic: 4.4.0-116-generic SMP mod_unload modversions retpoline You can now use the new kernel. You will probably have to do this with all your DKMS kernel modules. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1750937 Title: 4.4.0-116 Kernel update on 2/21 breaks Nvidia drivers (on 14.04 and 16.04) To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1750937/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
